Washington DC Traffic & Parking

Jump to last reply

Is traffic any different on weekends vs weekdays in DC? We are arriving on a Saturday (in Oct) and would like to drive ourselves out to the Jefferson Memorial & the Lincoln Memorial doing our own little night tour on that evening. There are 3 of us, my dad included who is 76 yrs old and while he is very active I'm worried about the distances of these Memorials to other places in DC. What if any parking will we be able to find on a weekend evening? If no parking is availabe to do it ourselves we have considered one of the night tours but we are staying near Barrack's Row and don't want to take the Metro back at 11:00 p.m. Is there parking readily available at Union Station (Trolley Tours) or at The Old Post Office (Washington DC Tours)?

Thank you
